About

Hello!

Thanks so much for stopping by. My name is Jen (aka Jennifer Lauren) and I live in beautiful New Zealand with my husband and two cats - Mocha (aka Biddy Bee) and Monty (aka Momo) - who occasionally feature on the blog. Sometimes reluctantly.

I mostly make clothing from original vintage patterns from the 40s, 50s and 60s but I have just completed my first ever knitting project and have ventured into the world of pattern making and have released The Afternoon Blouse pattern and The Bronte Top pattern.

We have also just bought our first home, a 1940's doer-upper that came with three chickens and an over-abundant fruit and vege garden.

I firmly believe that sewing is a completely personal thing and that there isn't one 'right' way to do it. I encourage you to try out your own ways of putting together a sewing pattern - if the way a technique is done doesn't work for you, then do it your way! There are plenty of people out there who will tell you that you can't do it your way (you have to do it the right way) but don't listen, it's your sewing project after all!

This blog is mostly about my sewing projects with a little bit of baking and mischief thrown in too. So grab a seat, a cup of tea and make yourself at home.

xx
Jen
